Reason To Kill - Holographic Memories
I’d like you to take into consideration that this band has not been signed by a label yet if you check out their songs on their MySpace. ‘Cause you probably will like it if you’re a Roadrunner Records loving person. I think this band would do just fine on such a label, between the greater names of Killswitch Engage and their labelmates.
The music has a real nice modern feel to it. These young dudes don’t shy away from melody, yet their music has a nice raw edge and a perfect groove to it as well. Especially the rhythm section makes for an interesting ride on this EP. Also vocalist Maikel Pijpers did a great job on this release. He’s got quite a voice there man! Capable of some great screaming, grunting and even some melodic vocals. The latter being the weakest part on this effort but certainly not bad.
One thing’s for sure, this ain’t your standard metalcore band. It’s modern day metal(core) with balls, interesting drumming, nice riffs and a great singer. I can tell you that! If you’re into the more modern metal(core) bands I suggest you to give Reason To Kill a try.
